Fissure Sealants for Teeth

Prevent Cavities with Our Sealants for Teeth

At Dentistree, we offer fissure sealants for teeth to help provide protection from tooth decay. Fissure sealant is a tooth coloured liquid which is applied on the chewing surface of adult molar teeth to prevent cavities from forming in early years. Once applied, the coating is permanent and will stay on for a number of years.

Why Do I Need Fissure Sealants?

Your back teeth are known as premolars and molars, and they have pits and grooves on the biting surface, some of which can be deep and difficult to keep clean with brushing. Food particles can become trapped and this creates a perfect breeding ground for plaque bacteria which if left, will generate cavities. Fissure sealants for teeth work by filling the deep pits and grooves, making it easier to clean your teeth and prevent cavities from forming.

The Procedure for Placing Sealants on Teeth

At Dentistree, we take the following steps to apply fissure sealants:

  • The teeth on which the sealants are being placed are cleaned and dried
  • The chewing surface of  the tooth is prepared to accept the fissure sealant
  • The fissure sealant is applied to the tooth using a small  brush and then  hardened by  a concentrated beam of ultraviolet light
